ILL and Document Delivery

Use this service to obtain materials not available in the PNWU Library. Document delivery and interlibrary loan services are offered free of charge to current PNWU students, faculty (including ACFs), residents, and staff. For easy ordering of journal articles, we recommend all affiliated users register for a Loansome Doc account.
